Album Notes
Hi Everybody,

We're called HAYWIRE!
We just released our first CD called MOVIN'! On our CD we put together a collection of songs that show what we're all about. We put some of our favorite "Classic" rockabilly songs and some solid "Original" songs on our CD!
Dennis sings lead vocals and plays lead guitar, Cathy sings harmony vocals (lead vocal on Bad, Bad Baby) and plays acoustic guitar, and Rick sings backup vocals and plays upright bass.
We put a lot of love and work into this CD. We hope you like it. Check it out, and let us know what you think!

Haywire's band members (Dennis, Cathy and Rick) have been enjoying and playing rockabilly for a long time.

Cathy loves rockabilly (the Burnette Brothers are her favorite!). She writes songs, and is a fine lyricist, too. Her solid rhythm guitar is the engine that drives Haywire's music. Her exceptional harmony singing also adds a lot to our sound!

Rick has been a fan of rockabilly music for a long time.
He is an all around musician. He plays upright bass (with Haywire), drums, and guitar. His natural feel on the bass is an asset to our music.

Dennis (aka Rockin' Denny) got into rockabilly for the first time in the late 1970's. He was diggin' Dave Edmunds and Robert Gordon (who both brought rockabilly to a wider audience at that time), but when he saw the Stray Cats, on a T.V. show called "Fridays", it was like seeing the Beatles on Ed Sullivan! Their music led him to the original rockabillies like Buddy, Carl, Johnny, the Burnette Brothers and many others.

He put together his first Rockabilly band (The Chrome Daddios) with his friend "Lonesome Willy" in the 1980's. Their sound was a cross between the Stray Cats and the Blasters. They had guitar, upright bass, piano, drums and even a sax for a short time. Recordings of the band have never been released.

The second band he was in (The Rocktones) had an edgier sound than the Chrome Daddios. They had fewer instruments, but they rocked hard! A few "Live" recordings are all that remain from that band.

His third band was called "ROCKIN' DENNY and THE REAL GONE GUYS". They recorded live in the studio using recording equipment almost identical to what they had at SUN Records (in the 1950's) in Memphis, Tennessee. Their single release from those sessions (BOP BOOGIE b/w TINGALING) has been reissued on a vinyl compilation called:
AMERICAN ROCKABILLY VOL. 1 Ultra Rare & Rockin'(Kat Tales).

We have a LIMITED supply of the "ORIGINAL" 45 rpm single "BOP BOOGIE b/w TINGALING" on the "PRESTO" label available at our website (www.haywirerocks.com)!

We have a NEW CD available!!!

The liner notes to Movin' dedicate the disc to Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Buddy Holly, Warren Smith, and the Rock and Roll Trio. Not surprisingly, Haywire's effort couldn't be a bigger fan letter to the ghosts of rock'n'roll past. Rooted in the sound of 1950's rockabilly, the trio's 14 song debut is a mix of original songs and favorite covers. The vocal harmonies of guitar duo Dennis and Cathy meld nicely with Rick Santon's thumping upright bass, and originals such as I'm Movin' and I'll Be There stand tall next to the tunes penned by Haywire's musical heroes.

This trio out of Ohio has put out a CD with some great tunes in their release entitled Movin'!
One thing that is really liked about this album is the recording quality. Too many times bands try to get the old recording sound of the 50's. We have the technology these days to get superb sound, so it should be taken advantage of, as this band has.
Besides the technical stuff however, this CD offers some great songs that are very easy to listen to. Get it, put it in your player, and roll away!


BEST SONGS: "Sweet, Sweet Girl" and "Rock Boppin' Baby"


Haywire - Movin'
Bop Boogie Records

Cathy Jo Petti and Dennis Petti made a good move by ditching folk music in favor of rockabilly. Not that the couple might not have been a fine folk-singing duo, but there's a glut of those in Cleveland -- and a dearth of roots rockers. So with friend Rick Santon, an upright-bass player, the Pettis plunged into the world of Carl Perkins and Duane Eddy.
Haywire's debut CD (Movin') has this rockabilly thing down pat. Nine of the 14 songs are covers, including the infectious Eddie Fontaine jewel "Nothin' Shakin' (But the Leaves on the Trees)." It's the stuff Dennis and Cathy Jo wrote themselves, however, that gives this outfit such promise. Cathy Jo's "Bad, Bad Baby" could easily have been recorded by (dare we say) Elvis Presley in his pre-Hollywood, pre-Vegas days. Let's hope that Haywire is in the rockabilly biz for the long haul.
